Structural Support for “Seven Kisses”

Custom Structural Support for Artwork (Please contact me to make a similar piece.)

Application: Indoor/Outdoor

This structural support was made to support “Seven Kisses,” a 2014 assemblage created by Maddy Bragar. Standing more than 12 feet tall and created from the floorboards of a 1929 Hereshoff boat, Maddy wanted “Seven Kisses” to stand upright, in a way that complimented the piece and did not take away from the piece’s presentation.

I created the support from 2″ x 4″ x 1/4″ rectangular tubing, with a “jogged notch” in the lower portion of the support to accommodate the shape of the artwork. All welds in the support were ground smooth and painted with a satin black paint, providing a discreet and structurally sound support that compliments the artwork and accomplishes the artist’s presentation goal.

Application: Indoor/Outdoor

Signed: KR2014

This copper weathervane base was made for a client who salvaged this weathervane from a home they lost to fire. The weathervane was atop their garage and survived the fire and they wanted to prominently display it in their new home, as a memento of their old home.

The base is hand-formed from .080″ thick copper and a 1″ stainless steel through the center to accept the post. The piece was welded together using the Tungsten Inert Gas (T.I.G.) welding process and the patina was obtained by oxidizing the copper with a “special solution.” It measures 12″ in height, 12″ in depth and 12″ in width

Similar bases can be made to display other forms of art and they can be personalized with many effects, to include more details, different materials, different shapes and other adornments that you might want to make it special.

Bases can be designed for indoor or outdoor use.
